Help with indoor antenna.
Sorry, I'm sure you get a ton of questions about this, I wanted to ask some specific questions. I have been struggling to capture the same FM stations in my home I get in my car. I have cobbled together a combo FM/AM antenna and mounted it in my Attic which is fairly high (3 story house). The antenna uses rabbit ears for the FM section, and I built a wire loop for the AM section both connected to opposite ends of a PVC shaft. AM Signal is non-existant, FM is ok but not as good as my car. Clearly the rabbit ears could be shot, but I am also questioning the connectors/wire I used to my receiver. For FM I used an old balun and ran coax the 70' to my receiver. Should I have used 2 lead antenna "flat wire"? How about on the AM side, should I have used antenna flat wire there also and ran that the 70' to the receivers? I feel I should be getting close, but am still not there yet. Oh one more question, how critical is the expanded length of the rabbit ears? Should I just expand them the maximum?
Thanks for any and all help!!!
